    The 20 Worst Foods In America

    20. Worst Fast-Food Chicken Meal
    Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips from McDonald's (5 pieces) with creamy ranch sauce

    830 calories
    55g fat
    (4.5g trans fat)
    48 g carbs

    The only thing "premium" about these strips is the caloric price you pay......

    19. Worst Drink
    Jamba Juice Chocolate Moo'd Power Smoothie
    (30 fl oz)

    900 calories
    10 g fat
    183 g carbs
    (166 g sugars)

    Jamba Juice calls it a smoothie; we call it a milkshake. In fact, this beverage contains more sugar than two pints of Ben and Jerry's Butter Pecan ice cream.

    18. Worst Supermarket Meal
    Pepperidge Farm Roasted Chicken Pot Pie
    (whole pie)

    1,020 calories
    64 g fat
    86 g carbs

    Once you crack the crust, there will be no stopping......

    17. Worst "Healthy" Burger
    Ruby Tuesday Bella Turkey Burger

    1,145 calories
    71 g fat
    56 g carbs

    We chose this burger for more than its calorie payload: Its name implies that it's healthy.

    16. Worst Mexican Entree
    Chipotle Mexican Grilled Chicken Burrito

    1,179 calories
    47 g fat
    125 g carbs
    2,656 mg sodium

    Despite a reputation for using healthy, fresh ingredients, Chipotle's menu is limited to king-size burritos, overstuffed tacos, and gigantic salads—all of which lead to a humongous waistline...........

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...can_Entree.php

    15. Worst Kids' Meal
    Macaroni Grill Double Macaroni 'n' Cheese

    1,210 calories
    62 g fat
    3,450 mg sodium

    It's like feeding your kid 1 1/2 boxes of Kraft mac 'n' cheese........

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20..._Kids_Meal.php

    14. Worst Sandwich
    Quizno's Classic Italian (large

    1,510 calories
    82 g fat
    3,750 mg sodium
    106 g carbs

    A large homemade sandwich would more likely provide about 500 calories.......

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...t_Sandwich.php

    13. Worst Salad
    On the Border Grande Taco Salad with Taco Beef

    1,450 calories
    102 g fat
    78 g carbs
    2,410 mg sodium

    This isn't an anomaly: Five different On the Border salads on the menu contain more than 1,100 calories each

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...orst_Salad.php


    12. Worst Burger
    Carl's Jr. Double Six Dollar Burger

    1,520 calories
    111 g fat

    Carl's brags about this, but also provides convenient nutrition info on its Web site—so ignorance is no excuse for eating it.

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...rst_Burger.php

    11. Worst Steak
    Lonestar 20 oz T-bone

    1,540 calories
    124 g fat

    Add a baked potato and Lonestar's Signature Lettuce Wedge, and this is a 2,700-calorie blowout.

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...orst_Steak.php

    10. Worst Breakfast
    Bob Evans Caramel Banana Pecan Cream Stacked and Stuffed Hotcakes

    1,540 calories
    77 g fat
    (9 g trans fat)
    198 g carbs
    (109 g sugars)

    Five Egg McMuffins yield the same caloric cost as these sugar-stuffed flapjacks.

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20..._Breakfast.php

    9. Worst Dessert
    Chili's Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream

    1,600 calories
    78 g fat
    215 g carbs

    Would you eat a Big Mac for dessert? How about three? That's the calorie equivalent of this decadent dish. Clearly, Chili's customers get their money's worth.....

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...st_Dessert.php


    8. Worst Chinese Entree
    P.F. Chang's Pork Lo Mein

    1,820 calories
    127 g fat
    95 g carbs

    The fat content in this dish alone provides more than 1,100 calories. And you'd have to eat almost five servings of pasta to match the number of carbohydrates it contains. Now, do you really need five servings of pasta?

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...ese_Entree.php


    7. Worst Chicken Entree
    Chili's Honey Chipotle Crispers with Chipotle Sauce

    2,040 calories
    99 g fat
    240 g carbs

    "Crispers" refers to an extra-thick layer of bread crumbs that soaks up oil and adds unnecessary calories and carbs to these glorified chicken strips..........

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...ken_Entree.php

    6. Worst Fish Entree
    On the Border Dos XX Fish Tacos with Rice and Beans

    2,100 calories
    130 g fat
    169 g carbs
    4,750 mg sodium

    Perhaps the most misleadingly named dish in America: A dozen crunchy tacos from Taco Bell will saddle you with fewer calories......

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...ish_Entree.php


    5. Worst Pizza
    Uno Chicago Grill Chicago Classic Deep Dish Pizza

    2,310 calories
    162 g fat
    123 g carbs
    4,470 mg sodium

    Downing this "personal" pizza is equivalent to eating 18 slices of Domino's Crunchy Thin Crust cheese pizza........

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...orst_Pizza.php

    4. Worst Pasta
    Macaroni Grill Spaghetti and Meatballs with Meat Sauce

    2,430 calories
    128 g fat
    207 g carbs
    5,290 mg sodium

    I included the picture. This looks tasty! http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/cm...worstpasta.jpg

    This meal satisfies your calorie requirements for an entire day.

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...orst_Pasta.php

    3. Worst Nachos
    On the Border Stacked Border Nachos

    2,740 calories
    166 g fat
    191 g carbs
    5,280 mg sodium

    More fat and sodium than you should be getting in one meal, let alone in a single appetizer....

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...rst_Nachos.php

    2. Worst Starter
    Chili's Awesome Blossom

    2,710 calories
    203 g fat
    194 g carbs
    6,360 mg sodium

    It takes a special talent to turn a single oversized onion into the fat equivalent of 67 slices of bacon, but the line cooks at Chili's manage this horrific feat with the help of a thick batter, a calorie-loaded dipping sauce, and a vat of bubbling fat.....

    http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/20...st_Starter.php

    1. The Worst Food in America
    Outback Steakhouse Aussie Cheese Fries with Ranch Dressing

    2,900 calories
    182 g fat
    240 g carbs

    This weapon of mass construction is the caloric equivalent of eating 14 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, before your dinner arrives. Even if you split this "starter" with 3 friends, you'll have downed a meal's worth of calories.........

    Top 10 Wost Fast Food Meals

    Before I post the list: one gram of fat translates as nine calories and a gram of carbohydrate as four calories in the metabolic process (your body).

    Top 10 Wost Fast Food Meals
    1. Let’s start with the McDonald’s Deluxe Breakfast…shall we? The deluxe breakfast at McDonald’s includes sausage, eggs and pancakes asphyxiated in margarine and syrup, with a biscuit and hash browns. This can actually work to your advantage if consumed occasionally (like four times a year). However, the total of this tasty breakfast meal at “the house Ronald McDonald built” is 1220 calories, with 550 total fat (17 g. saturated fat). Enjoy it now—this is going to hurt you later.

    2. Burger King’s Triple Whopper with Cheese is the ideal example of the more, the better. If we were to look at Whopper with Cheese, the calorie intake alone is 760, with 47 g. fat (16 g. saturated fat). With the Triple Whopper with Cheese, we’re looking at 1230 calories with 82 g. fat (32 g. saturated fat). This doesn’t even include French fries.

    3. The Taco Bell Fiesta Taco Salad is on the top 10 worst fast food meals list? What’s the world coming to when you can’t even enjoy a refreshing, crisp salad without someone wagging a finger at you? Unfortunately, “salad” is just a moniker (in this case) for potpourri of unhealthy delicacies. This meal is in the neighborhood of 860 calories, with 46 g. of fat (14 g. saturated fat).

    4. Stuffed Crust Meat Lover’s Pie from Pizza Hut can do a hurting on your arteries. Two slices alone contain 82 g. of fat (22 g. saturated fat) with 1,000 calories.

    5. Caramel Pecanbon from Cinnabon has nothing on Wheaties in the health department. We’re talking 1,100 calories (56g. total fat), with practically no nutrients of worth whatsoever.

    6. Boston Market may provide healthy meals, but the delicious Chicken Pot Pie has 750 calories, with 46g. fat (14 g. saturated fat).

    7. Subway, with nerdy, bespectacled Jared as a spokesperson, endorses healthy meals at affordable prices constantly. However, the 6-inch Double Meat Classic Tuna slipped through the “eat fresh” cracks with clinging cheese and plenty of mayonnaise to clog an artery at a flick of a shred of lettuce. This “cardiac arrest waiting to happen” delicacy contains 790 calories, with 55g fat (16 g saturated fat). I suppose Jared the poster boy avoided this selection during his celebrated diet.

    8. The ExtravaganZZa Feast from Domino’s is a deep-dish pizza, with ham, pepperoni, onion, mushrooms, black olives, beef, sausage and extra cheese. With only two slices, we’re talking about 860 calories, and 46 g. of fat (17 g. saturated fat).

    9. The Mashed Potato Bowl with Gravy from KFC has more fat than the fried chicken with 690 calories and 31 g. of fat (9 g. saturated fat).

    10. Dairy Queen is popular for their cool, creamy treats that can satisfy a craving like nothing else in the dessert business. Imagine serving of 1290 calories, with 500 g. of fat (39 g. saturated fat). That’s what you will get with the Caramel CheeseQuake Blizzard to match the quake of your hips, backside and love handles.

    Bill Cosby said it best when he cried, “I am what I ate, and I’m frightened.” We all have our weaknesses when it comes to fast food delicacies and desserts. However, the health and diet consequences may not be worth the price of satisfying a fast food crave on a routine basis.

    That fat kid is incredible! Over his lifetime, if he has a lifetime, he'll probably single-handedly pay for one of those Ronald McDonald houses for sick kids that McDonald's fills with its young patrons.

    Named The Worst Drink On The Planet:

    Called a "weapon of mass construction."

    Baskin Robbins

    “A blend of HEATH Bar Crunch and Jamoca® ice creams, chopped HEATH Bar pieces and caramel, topped with whipped cream and chopped HEATH Bar pieces.”

    "To give you some perspective, slurping up one 32-ounce Heath Shake is the caloric equivalent of eating 12 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the saturated fat equivalent of scarfing 60 slices of bacon, and will give you the same sugar rush as working your way through 13 Haagen Dazs Vanilla and Almond ice cream bars."

    Sounds just like a Heath Bar Blizzard from DQ I use to get 2x weekly pre-SCI.... yummy. I was getting my dairy, right?
